The Cyto-Tek® 2500 offers excellent preservation of cellular structure and consistently delivers a high rate of cellular recovery. With its patented paced acceleration feature, the instrument automatically increases and decreases the rotational velocity based on the selected speed, which protects fragile cells and results in higher cellular yield.

The Cyto-Tek® 2500 was designed with enhanced features focusing on user safety including a new sealable rotor housing with lid, significantly reducing aerosol exposure. The new housing is completely removable and transportable, enabling loading and unloading of specimens under a fume hood. The cytocentrifuge has a sleek modern design and provides consistent performance that clinical laboratories have come to expect from Sakura.
